Tin Shop Tartan - Randolph County Alabama's Own Snarky and Surly Scot Gets All Native

Blogging from the suburbs of the Tin Shop community, Captain Plaid brings Progressivism, and a share of Quixotic angst, to the ridges and hollows of Randolph County, Alabama. Hardly a booster yet rooted here enough to fight, Plaidsters can perhaps find like cause in trying to build local solutions to global concerns. Education, environment, economy, entertainment, engagement ... Trust the Tartan!

Is "Civilization" Coming to Randolph County?

Saturday morning had both the Randolph County Animal Shelter book sale at Chris Mitchum's warehouse and also the Randolph County Historical Museum opening. I attended both and dropped $50.00 for each, all the time wishing I could do more. Not a great crowd at the museum yet a promising start. I had great memories of that old building from the old man's labors for Uncle Sam being where I started and ended many days. Seemed like good turnout for the book sale. Went to Annie L. Awbrey library for a bit and then had a blazing afternoon watching the boy's Little League team being crushed at the recreational facilities. At times I do wonder if Roanoke could move forward and become a neat little village. Hope spring eternal. Peace ... or War!
